Resource Alert: Library Specific Resources for Graphic Novel Readers

I have had this post in the queue and with the banning of MAUS and the long-standing [and WRONG] dismissal of Graphic Novels as "lesser" than text only books, I am moving this up to today. 

This post is here to highlight multiple Graphic Novel resources for your library to use right now for collections development, displays, and suggestions. With MAUS garnering attention, interest in graphic novels in general will be high. Let's take advantage and promote this format. 

Last week, my colleague Sonia sent me this excellent resource-- Manga in Libraries. I have not seen a resource for this format geared toward a library audience before this one. 

Also, the ALA's Graphic Novel & Comics Round Table recently released two excellent resources:

In general, the Graphic Novels & Comics Round Table of the ALA does excellent work and you should bookmark their website to return to frequently. 

Finally, don't forget to check out the NoveList and LibraryReads Crash Course on Graphic Novels from May 2020.
